My grandmother and I were the last patrons of the Inglewood Theatre in 1977. I remember it was cold and drizzling that day. The last movie to play at Inglewood Theatre playing was Poco (Little Lost Dog). I was 10 and was hooked on Benji and Herbie Love Bug movies, Poco was sort of a Benji rip off. When we walked in we noticed it was completely empty. The manager told us they were closing forever that day and this was the last movie. I will always remember walking out with the manager locking the door behind us thinking I was the last customer. I’ll always remember spending every weekend with my grandparents and going to that old theatre.

I believe after the theatre shutdown it became a Joywood Furniture store and then a junk store until they tore it down.

Thanks kiddmo,you are right it was the Joywood Salvage store before being torn down.

I never went to this theatre, but my grandparents lived in Madison and we used to drive past it when we were going into town. Long after it closed, I stopped by to take some photos and noticed the marquee box had the door open. All the letters were still laying on the shelves, covered in bird poo and dust. So the next day I came back with some trash bags and took most of what was in there. A lot of it was junk (and has since been thrown out), but I got some cool metal signs that say “coming” (like coming soon) and TechniColor. Still have them up in my house. I believe a RiteAid is now in that location. Sad that so many great theaters have bit the dust in Nashville.

I remember going to the Inglewood every Saturday on my bicycle. I was there when the Paris Peace Accords ending the United States involvement in Vietnam were signed in January 1973 because the theater manager stopped the movie for a moment of silence. I’ll never forget that day because of that. My brother was a theater manager for the company that owned the Inglewood so unless it was an “R” rating or special run I always got in free. I miss neighborhood theaters.
